Gone to camp...

Jut got home from dropping my baby boy off at camp. Stopped and got pizza, soda and ice cream for my older dd and I.
It's going to be a quie week.
Thinking of all the stuff I could get done this week...
What do you do while the kids are at camp?

  • My kids are pack rats so when they used to go to camps I'd utilize that time to go through every room in the house (and also the garage) and get rid of items that we no longer used. My car would be packed full of stuff for Goodwill and I'd have to make multiple trips. When they got back rarely did they ever notice that anything was gone.

  • Mine only went to camp in the 6th grade & that was a while ago. I think I enjoyed the peace & quiet, got some cleaning done & spent time w/ friends. Enjoy- it will go fast! :)

  • My 2 oldest just got back from camp, and I was on break from work so It was a quite week. I did get things done around the house that are hard when the kids are home. But I would take the time and do something for you, relax.

  • I cry and then I clean out thier room then I enjoy my other child and relax in the quiet of no bickering. I am always glad to see them when they come home. It gets easier every summer.
